Dear all,

I've been putting off Christmas things because it is ages away, I know realise that it is no longer ages away.

1. This saturday, I would like to go ice skating in George Square, and see It's a Wonderful Life at the GFT. All are welcome. The last screening is 20:20, I am unsure whether or not it will be necessary to book in advance but a link is provided for those who wish to do so.

2. Popular bar The Admiral will be having its Grande Quiz, on Tuesday the 22nd of December around 6ish. Many of you have come down to join us (Quiz On My Face) in the past, this particular quiz will have a £1,000 bar tab to play for. So if you are free you should consider swinging by.

I have came across a story in the news several times today about two men in Swansea, who saw two other men in drag, decided to accost them, but the men in drag were both professional cage fighters who quickly dispatched their assailants and then headed off to the fancy dress party they were going to.

The stories all say two things:

1. That the pair of men picked on the WRONG transvestites.

Which presupposes that beating up transvestites in the street is your civic duty unless they have incredibly butch jobs like cage fighting or Alaskan crab fishermen.

2. That the men who were APPARENTLY transvestites were ACTUALLY cage fighters.

As if you cannot be both and that the mistake the men who tried to beat them up made was not asking them if they were meek in advance.

Despite not being a transvestite, a professional fighter, or a drunken hoodlum who starts fights in the street, the coverage of this story annoys me and I feel it needs pointing out that it is not OK to beat people up because of perceived deviance from the status quo, and that people who enjoy dressing in feminine clothing are not necessarily incapable of kicking the shit out of you.

Their actions are to be deplored not because they chose their victims poorly, but because they chose victims in the first instance.

The BBC reports today that some MPs have concerns about how much it is costing and how long it is taking to build 2 new destroyers at Glasgow shipyards.

It has clearly been well researched as it informs me that "Destroyers are the workhorses of the Navy, defending larger ships from air attack."

Across the street from the Cineworld there is an empty shop-front to let. I'm trying to think of a shop it would be good to have across the street from a cinema but so far have proved unsuccessful, there is already places to get pick 'n' mix etc. The only thing I've really thought could work would be a movie memorabilia shop, but I'm unsure if that would really be a good location for such a thing.

Opinions?

Adam Hart Davis: God's messenger [24th/ Aug/ 2008|08:57 pm]

Even though we don't have the History Channel, our Virgin box still records things it shows for us to watch, last night I watched an episode of Just Another day in which Adam Hart Davis looks at everyday things and traces their origin throughout time and space.

During the show he explained that Romans, who invented most of our stuff, owing to a good climate, farmed and the bulk of their foot was bread supplemented by other things cooked in pots, while the ancient British, lived on animals they cooked over an open fire.

The British then discovered that when they poured water over the fire, the ash and water formed lye, which mixed with the fat and formed a lather, a lather they then washed their utensils and ash ridden clothes in.

They didn't invent soap, they discovered it, by living their lives.

I already believed the cosmos had been created, by a being more powerful than human beings, but I think the fact that soap happens when you finish eating is proof that they put some thought into it for our benefit.

If we took a holiday ... it would be, it would be so nice! [24th/ Mar/ 2008|12:57 am]

Discussions of places to visit this summer seem to have stagnated, for this reason I have prepared a map.




step 1. Make a copy of this map on your computer
step 2. Open this map in paint
step 3. Place a mark next to cities of interest to you for holiday purposes, there is no limit to the number of cities you mark.
step 4. Save your map and post it in your own journal, as a comment here, or send it back to me via e-mail.
step 5. I will see which places are indicated the most times by the most people and come up with figures for a trip there.

Kirsty Yarr has a particularly infuriating way of deciding which cities to list, she would open wikipedia, type in the name of the city she was considering, look at the photographs of buildings in the area, and then decide whether or not the architecture was awesome enough to look at in person. Although to be fair the map thing was her idea initially so you can't really fault her.
